Let’s face it, many children are not planned. But, once they arrive, they will ideally be in your life forever. Try to make sure your partner will be too.
The Expert Says: “Give yourself several years to know and enjoy your partner without the added responsibilities of children. Then ask yourself, ‘Do you share the same values with your partner?’ ‘Do you agree on ways to raise children?’ ‘Do you have a plan to pay for the additional expenses of children?’ Are you ready for this person to be in your life forever?” When you answer “yes” to these questions, then you are ready.”
